- Date a single boat owner
Very often boat owner boy or girl meets non-boat-owner girl or boy. They fall in love and the boat owner says, ‘lets sail around the world’. To increase your chances of success, hang out in marinas and yacht clubs.
- Set up a boat share
Find some friends and pool your money together to get a boat. After that, work on a plan to sail it around the world.
There’s several syndicate boat owners making their way around the world doing one to two passages a year. The owners work year round but take vacations to sail the boat to the next destination.
- Buy your own boat
If you do not want to depend on anyone, you can buy your own boat to sail around the world. Many boaters sell their house, buy a boat and turn to a nomadic sea life. The main issue is to find a source of income while sailing around the world. Renting out property, working online and finding work-from-home jobs are ways that many people make it work. Some people buy a boat and sail it six months out of the year and return home to work for six months.
